Changing Robe

Easy and warm changing on the beach. Keep out the wind in a colourful changing robe from Seabirds!

Product information

The Booicore Outdoor Changing Towel Robe combines convenience and comfort whenever and wherever you want it. No more struggling to get changed without flashing your bits to the rest of the beach etc. These robes are designed to give you plenty of room to keep your modesty intact. Also known as a surf robe or surf poncho - you can use it for all your salty activities!

Made from 100% (350g) cotton towelling in the EU. Machine washable and built to last. 

One Size
Measurement from armpit to armpit: 85cm. 
Measurement from centre of the back of neck to hem: 108cm. 

We looked for the biggest and best quality towelling robes available. They had to be be built to last with great coverage and ethical manufacturing. We found Booicore.  Booicore was created by a windsurfer frustrated with the lack of quality changing towel options and his wife with a background in garment manufacturing. They create high quality, durable products with the user at the heart of the design. A much more sustainable and less polluting option than a micro-fibre towel which add to plastic pollution whenever washed. Another plastic pollution solution and we love them! Better for the environment and better for you. Which colour will you choose? Satanic Red or Gandalf Grey....?

Comes in a reusable cotton drawstring bag with Booicore sticker. 

Every purchase helps get more people into the sea. At Seabirds in Brighton we are keen sea swimmers ourselves. As a social enterprise we reinvest our profits into the community through local charity, Surf Solace. They use the sea for well being therapy tackling mental health issues faced by vulnerable young people. Salted well being.

Came across these robes browsing and so glad I ordered one

Great choice of colours. Really luxurious feel. Feels very cosy on, good length and lots of room for changing. Love it!

Quick and cosy changing

I chose to get one of these robes after doing some research on different options - was pleased to find these at a decent price, in lots of lovely colours, and responsibly made. I've used my turquoise one plenty of times since and it's one of the best things I've bought since getting into outdoor swimming, for a quick and cosy dry and change right by the water! The bag that it comes with is also super handy. So pleased with it that I got my mum a navy one for Christmas for her sea swims. I'm just over 5 foot 6 and it's a great length for me. Thank you seabirds! x

Gorgeous, roomy and practical

I love my changing robe so much. It was a Christmas gift from my Dad.

There’s so much room to change and just the right size arm holes to keep everything covered up, no flashing here! The pocket is so useful too.

If you’re searching around for a changing robe and can’t decide - choose this one, it’s fab!

Received my beautiful turquoise robe yesterday. Had a practice with it and it's now washed, dried and ready in it's bag for my first aquafit session since the lockdown. We're not allowed in the changing rooms, have to arrive swim ready, so this is a brilliant alternative to driving home cold and wet. Can't wait to show it off.

Not only was the changing robe exactly what I was looking for... it was also hand-delivered the very next day in time for a birthday. Wonderful customer service and lovely products. Thank you!

Game changer;)

Game changing piece of kit. no more struggling with a towel, I can just throw this on over my head easily (good news when swimming in the sea in the winter!!!) dry off and get changed underneath. Dries quickly and easy to throw in washing machine

If you want to flash you can, but no need with this robe!

Struggle no more with the complicated dance of changing in a towel and trying to avoid flashing at the tourists (the locals are used to it)!

I love my towelling robe as it keeps me warm and soon dry whilst having plenty of room to change in. The sleeves are longer so no large slits in the side that one still inevitably flashes through, and it has a lovely large pocket at the front that you can stick your hot water bottle in if necessary.

I absolutely love my bright blue one and gave my Mum the amazing pink fuscia one as a gift, which she also loves.

I definitely recommend this as part of the swimmers kit.

Brilliant towelling robe!

So delighted with this purchase. It keeps me really warm and all my bits out of view when changing on the beach. Washes well too.
